You can find a link to download malwarebytes antimalware from my virus removal toolkit page.

If you are unable to install malwarebytes you may try the following things: 1) rename the installer from mbam-setup.exe to something like firefox.exe and retry the install/update and scan. 2) reboot into safe mode with networking and try to install, update and scan. 3) follow the next step which will be to kill off the running processes associated with this rogue and then retry your install, update and scan after that step.

The following programs are associated with antikeep and should be killed off using the task manager. If you are unable to launch the task manager try the following: 1) copy and paste the program taskmgr.exe to the desktop and then rename it to something else. (iexplore.exe) then try launching this renamed program. 2) reboot into safe mode and see if the following programs are running. 3) use process explorer to kill off the following processes:

AntiKeep.exe
uninstall.exe

The following files and folders should be deleted for a manual removal of AntiKeep:
